Another major Chinese manufacturer, Hikvision, could be subject to sanctions imposed by the US government. Rumors about blacklisting it have already affected the company’s stock.
According to ilenta.com, now company representatives say they have not received any notification from the United States about blacklisting it.
Hikvision specializes in surveillance cameras.
If the decision is made, then US companies will have to obtain special government approvals in order to receive Hikvision equipment.
Meanwhile, Hikvision says that the chips that Hikvision uses are completely normal and most of the suppliers are based in China, and only a small part in the United States. Therefore, there should be no significant impact on the manufacturer’s business.

Now the company employs 13 thousand employees. Hikvision is among the top 3 best security companies in the Security 50 rating of A & S magazine.
